FA<i« TEH BLYTHEVILLE (AML) COUBIEK NEWS Military Chiefs Conclude Tour Trip Around Atlontic Pact Nations* Was Aimed at Solidarity By Edwin Sh*nke LONDON, Aug. 8. (/Pji—America's top military planners concluded today a whirlwind tour of the Atlantic Pact countries, aimed at cementing them into a solid defense wall. Tn 10 conference-packed days. Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Louis Denfeld, Army Chief of.Staff Gen. Omar Bradley and Air Force Chief Gen, Hoyt Vandenberg covered western Europe by ftir. They appeared m alnl y to be studying means of reaching airtight military unity among the 10 pact members—unification of strategic planning and of the command and functions of their pooled armed forces. They Inspected the U. S. Army o! Occupation in Germany. They met with British, Norwegian and Danish military chiefs in London i Dtstau * Moscow Scores Truman Policies Pravda Commentator Highly Critical of American President MOSCOW, Aug. 8. (AP)—Pravda accused President Truman today at 'inning war hysteria and pobonlng he International atmosphere. The attack, written by commen- a'.or M Marlnln, occupied almost a •ill page In the Communist party lewspaper. "History teaches as ruin is the in- ivitable fate of every policy based m risk-taking," Marinln wrote. 'Such failure also awaits the policy Truman and his and conferred with French tuguese, Dutch and Belgian lary delegations in Paris. They rounded off these meetings —all held under conditions of greatest secrecy—with a long discussion with Field Marshal Viscount Montgomery, chairman of the western European Union's five-nation military committee, representing Britain, Prance, Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg. The staff chiefs' trip 'ended in Vienna yesterday with an inspection of American forces In Austria. Today, they will return to Washington crammed with facts about Western Europe's defenses and her military organization. Report Significant What they report there will influence the course of President Truman's $1,450,000,000 arms for Europe program now before Congress. At each stopover, the military leaders were virtually mum on Ihc course of their conversations. They emphasized "no decisions were be- Ing made," But Adm. Denfeld, speaking for the group in Paris, said the talks had resulted in "great unanimity of opinion on almost all questions." They left the world guessing about the specific nature of these questions: Would a large, pooled army or a small mobile force backed by plntics numerous enough to control the air be better strategy? Where should the West stand fast in the event of an attack: on the Elbe in Germany? On the Rhine? Or behind the English Channel? Where should th'e 'defense line begin and end? How much military equipment •will America send to western Europe until her economically hard- pressed countries get squared away? -What type of armament will H be? And how soon will it come? How will each country, having its own peculiar defense problems, weaknesses and strengths, fit into the overall strategy? If these questions were taken up, the American leaders were not saying so. They would go no further at news- conferences than Vo say that only matters of military orgnnizn- tioii under the Atlantic Pact were discussed. V. S. STAFF CHIEFS GREETED IN PARIS—French defense minister Paul Rnmadler (center, gesturing) talks to the U. S. joint chiefs of staff soon alter their arrival in Paris during their European tour lo study defense needs of Atlantic Pact nations.

CAP) -A defense attorney at the conspiracy trial of 11 top U.S. Communists today withdrew a woman Communist official a.s a witness after another with Federal Judge Harold R. Medina. The woman was Miss Helen Musil, a St. Louis suu^age maker who .siitd she served a-s state organizational .secretary for thy communist party in Missouri. Attorney Harry Saclier told Judge Medina he- had no other choice but to withdraw the witness after the judge refused to allow his questions, Snchor smarted off by asking Miss I'.sil If she liad recommended a number of communist books to a party leadership training class In 1945 when the party was known as the Communist Political Association. U.S. Attorney John F.K. McGohey immediately objected. Judge Medina .sustained his objection. Then Judge Medina excused the jury when Sacher said he proposed to withdraw MLss MILS!I because the court sustained the objection. Sacher said he had called her lo refute the government's claim that the party suppressed some of its literature during the "Political Association' days and then put it replied, "is that any .statement made on the record may be used in a future court action."

Packing j Australian Mailmen Find Their Jobs Tough The secretary said that Russia is maintaining the largest armed force; in (lie peacetime history of any country. And, he added. Moscow "lins ii«cd or attempted to use its obvious military superiority to intimitlnic and coerce smaller nations." Aehe.son contended much will be gained and nothing will he lost "by extending this military assistance now." He added: "Since Ihr present »-e:iKncss Invites the <T:inser of war anil sinre fulnre nlanniiu; ran not Impair (tie vallllilv of this program, It would lir foolish (n risk Hip possible coiisiitiitciires of delay." The secretary declared the leaders of totalitarian states wilt cooperate with the Western powers only when they are convinced that Ihe free nation.-! of the world are "to stroni; to he overcome by external aKsres.ston or internal subversion." "We shall stand in criminal ne- clcet and the ideals of the United Nations will be seriously jeopardized if we do not do all that we can. by Imlh moral and material means, [o bring home lo these men' 'the Russian lenders) the wisdom of lending their peoples toward world cooperation and world peace," he continued.

"The warmongers continue to -ush about, for they feel time Is igainst them. The powerful camp of peace goes forward to meet tomorrow, confident of its strength in Its truth and in the deep reality of its purposes." Marinln said President Truman Is 'Incapable of hardening to the voice of fact," and is following a iwlicy dictated by warmongers. "This policy is one of artificially playing on nerves, poisoning the international atmosphere and speculating on fear, lack ol confidence and alarm," It said. "In his message rruman sounds hysterical notes: Don't lose time! Pass (the arms for Europe program) In the shortest possible timel'" today. .
